“In Vegas at the Contender I felt like a kid, I felt like a young boy,” Crute said. “As I said before, this is the first fight I’ve felt like a man that’s going in there with a purpose.”
That purpose is to be remembered as an exciting fighter and a warrior that never took a step back. Crute also has every intention to skyrocket the credibility of the MMA scene in Melbourne, as he is one of four Aussies fighting out of former UFC fighter Dan Kelly’s gym, The Resilience Training Centre.
“We have been quietly hustling for some time now. It’s Jake Matthews, Cal Potter, Ben Sosoli and I here in Auckland,” Crute said. “And we are going to put on for Melbourne and start our own takeover.”
